I took up photography living in Somerset aged 16. For me, it is an excuse to interact with people and a subtle way to describe them.
Halfway through my English degree at Sussex University I got the opportunity to go to the West Bank, and spent weeks talking to farmers, trade unionists, women’s co-ops and students. Editors at Palestine Monitor and DeviantArt picked up my articles when I returned. I discovered photojournalism could be a way for me to make sense of some of the world’s suffering – perhaps even alleviate it. I started covering local protests in Brighton, talking to locals, getting kettled, and being an active protester while making photographs.
In December 2012 P21 Gallery got in touch saying they’d like to exhibit my photos from Palestine. This helped me start taking my photography seriously. I quit my day job and currently freelance as a photographer and trainer, and volunteer for causes I care about. — August 2013
